Surrounded by garden. Staffs are very helpful. It is located at sivanadi road exactly 3km from kodai lake. Food which we ordered for dinner was very tasty. Clean room with heater facilities. Best part was we checked out in the morning and went for sightseeing. We came back in the evening they provided room for refreshing.

A beautifully built place in Kodaikanal with really huge rooms. The food was also quite good. I had taken my team out for an overnight outing and we were 12 people. We reached quite late yet they were able to serve us both snacks as well as dinner. The breakfast was also nice. As for the rooms, they are quite...

Entering through the gates of Lilly’s Valley Resort was promising. And it turned out to be as promising as we had wished. The many houses, creating a small village, were built in 1982, but they rather looked as they were built in 1882, with a beautiful garden on a slope. Breakfast, Indian style, is served under a roof out in...

Lilys valley is a quirky place. Nice old style accomodation and reasonably equipped rooms. The issues are more around facilities in the room and the resort in general. Lack of a covered dining area is a bid drawback during winters. For short stays with family this is a good place and worth a second look for your plans.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lilly’s Valley is a uniquely beautiful resort set amid terraced gardens on three acres of wooded land, ringed by towering eucalyptus trees. Its 21 traditional stone cottages are constructed in the colonial British style, with handcrafted woodwork details throughout. It is the rare resort with an eco-focus and no concrete structures: even the furniture is lovingly made by hand by talented craftsmen! Built in 1982, Lilly’s Valley was the first resort in Kodaikanal. Our stone-and-wood cottages, both free-standing and attached, can accommodate couples, small and large family groups, students, and corporate groups. We are located in a quiet suburban neighborhood exactly 2 km from the center of town and the lake. With a short taxi ride or 15-minute walk, you’ll be in the heart of shopping, boating, horse-riding, roller-skating and other tourist attractions. Our style is low-key and customized to you: you can order simple, tasty Western and South Indian dishes from the kitchen, and hold gatherings in the garden gazebo with your own music and programs. We’ll even arrange a cozy night bonfire! We have special rates for long-term stays of one week or more, up to a 50% discount. Discounts are also available for weekdays. Many repeat customers, both Indian and foreign, have been coming here for decades, drawn back by the beauty, peacefulness, and cozy cottages. One Italian child born in one of our cottages returned 25 years later with her husband to stay in the same cottage! ... more   less
